Thanks for your suggestions Ron.  Incidentally, I was already doing as you
suggested in your first reply.

I have just tried removing the:

OrdinaryFileList  /cgi-bin/

But, this just results in the Interchange generated "Missing" page -  "Sorry
/cgi-bin/myscript.pl" does not exist.  i.e.  Apache/Interchange goes looking
for the directory /cgi-bin/ within the catalog hierachy, and this doesn't
exist.  I suppose I could move all the scripts withing the catalog, but I
don't really want Interchange to parse my scripts.

Does anyone have any other ideas, or know the solution - I feel there must
be one :-)  Thanks again...
